The Oakland Raiders are dealing with their usual assortment of injury problems before they face off Sunday with the Cleveland Browns. It hasn't kept them from performing well from week-to-week, but it would be nice to see a healthy team for once.
The one to keep an eye on is the health status of Rolando McClain, who is dealing with ankle problems and did not practice on Wednesday.
Other injuries include the following.
Raiders who did not practice
RB Rock Cartwright (calf). He's the guy who did the fake punt direct snap last Sunday.
CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring). Had his helmet, but apparently didn't do anything of note.
TE Richard Gordon (hand). No helmet.
LB McClain (ankle). See above.
FB Marcel Reece (ankle). Not at practice.
DE Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder). Ditto.
Raiders who were limited in practice
S Michael Huff (ankle)
CB Chris Johnson (hamstring). Just like the more famous Chris Johnson, that hamstring is bugging him.
C Samson Satele (ribs). He intended to practice today. He did a little, but he expects to play Sunday.
DT Richard Seymour (knee). Giving a TED talk too apparently.
Raiders who fully practiced
QB Jason Campbell (foot), S Matt Giordano (groin/concussion), S Michael Mitchell (knee), WR Louis Murphy (groin),
TE Brandon Myers (ribs)
Here are the Browns injuries.
Non-participants: CB Joe Haden (knee), C Alex Mack (appendectomy). Both Haden and Mack have sat out the last two practices.
Limited: LB Titus Brown (ankle), WR Josh Cribbs (knee), OL Tony Pashos
